RIP Rutger Hauer. Starred in some classic films.
A great actor and an even more amazing gentleman whom absolutely put his money and arse on the line for others.
• Started an AIDS foundation.
• Involved with Green Peace & their anti whaling work in the seas off Norway.
• Taught acting and film making classes AFTER he was a world wide star, to young, new acting & behind the camera students back in his home country where he himself started.
One of the coolest things I know about him, because they're one of my most loved films, is that he was the first actor to be considered for the part of Martin Riggs in Lethal Weapon. HE was to be Martin Riggs originally.
In his own words,
- "All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die." -
Rest in peace old friend.
